Editorial Reviews


"Trained in the new social history, Taylor is especially attuned to diversity and conflict in early American society. . . . Writing Early American History is a provocative and very well written collection."—History

"Taylor is not only a trenchant critic; he is a skilled and able practitioner, surely one of the best of the current generation of historians."—New Perspectives on the Eighteenth Century

"Taylor is the leading historian of early America. . . . This collection reprints his often quite lengthy review articles . . . in a thematically organized anthology. It is an absolute joy to dip into and will confirm Taylor's reputation as a historians' historian."—Journal of American Studies
